Fantasy of Ellen Ochoa Alien Possession, written by Miguel Angel Luis Lopez
Ellen Ochoa went to another planet, then she came back to Earth. Now she is an alien. She robs things. She goes to class to ear children. She robs ice cream. She robs computers. She attacks the school. She rips up homework. She gives wedgies.
She takes people’s hearts, puts them in her machine, and makes soap. When she is inside, she locks the door and throws snakes. Last, she destroys the world and robs it of giant gold.
